DECEMBER 2020: Good news! My novel CATHEDRAL will be published by Europa Editions: the book should be out in January 2021. Watch this space ...

I'm now working mainly on MEETINGS WITH MONSTERS, a documentary with John Goetz, for NDR/ARD/ARTE.The shoot was delayed by the Corona crisis, and we're now working hard to catch up.

I've been writing the script for FUZE - an action movie/thriller for director David Mackenzie and Sigma Films...

...and have recently completed work on the screenplay of VATAN (FATHERLAND) - the real life story of Musa X; an action-packed biopic that takes in much of recent Turkish and German history. The screenplay is co-written with Atilla Oener.

Fine-tuning work continues on INSIDE, a screenplay commissioned by Heretic Films in Greece... a kind of thriller set in a billionaire's penthouse...

MARIONETTE, a film I co-wrote with director Elbert van Strien, has now been completed and has been released in a few territories (in the UK on VOD, and in cinemas in the Benelux area.)

And finally I've started work on a new novel. The working title is GHOSTS. I'm about half way through.
